François Hamel hosts this conference which was held at the very beginning of 1976. He is a student at the École Polytechnique of the Université de Montréal, and this video is a show produced by the student TV station, Poly-TV. The guest is Claude Charron, then deputy for Saint-Jacques, who chose to talk about the Olympic Games which would be held later that same year. We hear a detailed, and partisan, history of the political decisions that led to getting the Olympic Games, and Charron talks about the budgets, the political scandals, Jean Drapeau and the Bourassa government. 1976 is also an important date for the Parti Québécois, and we can't help but smile to hear Charron say that Bourassa had declared that there would be no elections in 1976.
